Outdoors news and notes: Rowing regatta invades Tampa

Making news

Rowers to invade Tampa for Regatta

Some of the nation's top rowers will converge on Tampa this weekend for the annual Roosevelt Regatta. Rowing, or "crew" as it is sometimes called, has a strong following in the northeast United States and among Ivy League schools. Tampa has long had its own rowing scene, thanks to the sheltered waters of the Hillsborough River. Among the competitors on hand will be the U.S. Olympic rowing team. The rowing action runs from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, with paddleboarders, kayakers and dragon boat races slated for 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Fans can watch from shore at Seddon Channel along Davis Islands' Marjorie Park. For more information, go to rooseveltrowingregatta.com.

Annual NOOD series arrives

More than 1,000 of the world's top competitive yachtsmen will be in St. Petersburg this weekend for the opener of the 27th season of the National Offshore One-Design regatta series. The NOOD boasts three days of one-design — a term used to describe boats with identical measurements and specifications — racing on different courses with easy viewing from the Pier downtown. While the NOOD usually features at least 10 classes, the overall winner is picked on both fewest number of points accumulated — in sailing, the lower the number, the higher the rank — and the overall competitiveness of the class. The regatta series is part of a multicity tour with stops in Annapolis, Md.; Seattle; Chicago; Marblehead, Mass.; and San Francisco. The series championship will once again be in the British Virgin Islands in November. St. Petersburg skipper Robby Brown was the overall winner at the St. Petersburg event last year and claimed the title of 2013 NOOD overall champion. The action starts at 10 a.m. today through Sunday.
